I received a query this morning from of professor who is wondering what online resources are available for college-level ancient Greek. Specifically, he's looking for software or accredited, online courses in the subject. What can you all recommend?
Hi Andrew, my school is no longer offering this online Biblical Greek course which I developed (it was offered once through Religious Studies, but Classics dept. was not keen on that) - but for someone interested in self-study or who just wants some additional study materials online, I left the whole course up here: BIBLICAL GREEK ONLINE
It is based on Croy's Biblical Greek book which I think is an EXCELLENT way to learn Greek. I always advocate starting either with Homeric Greek (easier than Attic) or with Biblical Greek (also easier than Attic) - and then adjusting to Attic Greek afterwards if that is what someone wants in particular to read.
Croy's Biblical Greek textbook is my favorite of the Bible-based Greek books. :-)
I did use this before, on the "Drill" parts particularly. I am sure it did help me, if it can do the same to the professor you mentioned: http://socrates.berkeley.edu/~ancgreek/
Ancient Greek Tutorials, by Donald J. Mastronarde with the assistance of the Berkeley Language Center of the University of California, Berkeley.
By the way, I dropped by because I subscribed to the [DIGITALCLASSICIST] and read your invitation to join in, I guess I am the 976th member here since I saw 975 in the /member link, that is contrary to your 976 members statement, I wonder why...
